There are boys everywhere.
Nearly all of my friends have at least one of them, if not more. And many of my friends have only boys. When Hank and I were expecting our youngest, I admit that I felt a little sadness but more relief than anything that we weren’t going to have a girl, because I knew we would be broke since a little girl would require me to buy an explosion of pink things, including those cute little Uggs I’ve seen around.
Yes, it’s ridiculous, and no, I wouldn’t have cared.
So when my friend announced that she was going to have a daughter, I was over the moon. And who do you think, between Hank and me, bought her her first little outfit from the two of us? HANK!!I Dude totally beat me to it. And he bought two little dresses for her, no less.
He would have probably bought her those Uggs, had I not stopped him.
Needless to say, she has thrown herself into the mix of the stinky boys and will soon be their leader, I predict.
She lines right up with them to watch movies about Legos and The Hero Factory.
They don’t notice her just yet, starting to wield her special powers, but they will soon. Mark my words.
Oh yeah. There’s a new sheriff in town, boys.
You know what else is new?
My new cookie jar.
I’m a total dork. Whatever.
We all have to embrace something.
